hi all, i am about to need an upgrade to my psu and am a bit stuck on what to buy. i currently have an asus 7970 that's overclocked and plan to add a second of the same card, i run an overclocked 3570k as well and it's cooled by a corsair h100i. i'm looking at a couple different units mainly the: corsair ax860, the cooler master v1000, and when it comes out the corsair rm1000. any thoughts? i'd like to stay as far under $200 usd if i can but want as good as i can. oh and i want 80+ gold or higher. thanks!

I'd look into a 850W or better Corsair, XFX, Seasonic, Antec. Here is a quality chart you may be interested in. Not sure how up to date it is, tho.

My 850W XFX Black Edition has lasted through several dual card system builds and upgrades over the years.

If you can get it in your contry and if you want to pay to get some of the best.

Then this will be very hard to find some other PSU to compete with. cost 234 Euro


Otherwise. Corsair also do a bloody good job.

The Corsair AX 860 is plenty and the one I would take out of those but have you considered SS X series http://pcpartpicker.com/part/seasonic-power-supply-x850


ok that's kind of what i'm leaning toward, you think that's enough wattage though?


Yes it is plenty since 2 x 7970 in CF only calls for 800watts http://www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/Page362.htm and they are not meaning quality PSU like the Corsair AX!
Under furmark a System with 2 x 7970GHz consumes 690watts that is total system load http://www.anandtech.com/show/6915/amd-radeon-hd-7990-r...
